Hello Inspired By Stamping Friends!
Kendra here from Luv 2 Scrap n’ Make Cards to share a fun card with you today!
I love the Flower of the Month: Poppies set!!
Which is why I decided to have some fun with it again!!
Here is a look at the card I created:
Isn’t it fun?!
A look at my process:
I started by using the matching .svg file to cut the image of the poppy out.
In this case, I wanted the negative part. (Although it the end I could have used the regular piece, but didn’t find that out at first!)
I picked out a fun stencil I wanted to use and taped it down to keep it in place. Then I had some fun with my distress inks.
This was a moment, when my vision didn’t end up being what it looked like. I wasn’t completely happy with the result, I really liked it, but for some reason it really bugged me.
Before I completely gave up on this idea, I sat and thought about it for a little bit. I realized what bugged me, was the space between the stems. Having the stenciled design in that part, I believe kind of distracted me from the pretty image. So I decided to fussy cut around the entire image as well as some of the space between the stems.
I was MUCH happier with the result then. So thankful I didn’t give up on my first idea.
I used a black mat to really make the flower stand out more.
Isn’t the flower beautiful and different?!
I sure have been having fun using stencils!!
I really like how this card ended up turning out!!
Even though I was a little worried at first!!
